Hubris Towers Season 1, Episode 4
Ominous Undertones

Ben Y. Faroe, Billie Hoard

A trio of enigmatic visitors bring out a new side of Mr. Schwartz, while rumors of imminent plumbing disaster take on a life of their own among the tenants of Hubris Towers.

These things always blow over, of course, but it’s still best to investigate, if only to satisfy the tenants. Little does Jimmy know the stakes are about to be raised and new alliances formed as his investigation turns up rather more than he wanted to know about Hubris Towers and Ana makes a disturbing discovery of her own.

At least there’s Mrs. Plover’s pie to look forward to. There’s no way pie can go wrong. Right?

This is the fourth installment in Hubris Towers, a comedy series for fans of P. G. Wodehouse and Fawlty Towers. If you’re new to the series, sign up at to try the first two episodes on us.
